Stepping Stone School at Plum Creek / Buda


  • After School: Negley, Kyle, Fuentes, Buda, Carpenter Hill


Welcome to the Stepping Stone School located at 1020 Lightfoot Street in Kyle, conveniently located off of FM 1626 and FM 150 and easily accessible from US-35. It is also on the way for those who are commuting to Austin from San Marcos and very close to Buda. The school was designed and built from the ground up by the Paver Family ensuring security and safety. This campus is considered one of the leading examples of a high quality state-of-the-art early care and education facility nationally.

The campus boasts a large indoor atrium filled with lots of natural light. The atrium provides a place for family gatherings or for our enrichment programs which include Dance Discovery, Opus One, Gym Station Flippers, and Gym Station Sports. This state-of-the-art facility will also introduce a Library Grotto where the children will gather beneath specialized lighting in an environment designed for o ptimal reading mastery and enjoyment. In addition, interactive displays of books, paper, printing and literacy through time will be featured throughout the school. Hallways radiate out from the atrium with younger children in one wing and older children in the other.

A classroom dedicated to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) curriculum and activities, as well as our innovative program called The Atelier™ will take center stage for children three years old and up. The Atelier™ is comprised of three areas of focus; the Creative Art Gallery, Character Role Models, and the Architecture Studio. The Atelier™ is overseen by a seasoned artistic and creative educator who is available to guide the children while fostering their imagination to take their learning to the next level. Learn more.

A museum quality timeline tracing the history of writing with hands-on displays will be the hallmark of the Pre-K and school age wing of the building. From ancient papyrus to clay tablets and modern day hand-held computers, children will expand their minds by seeing firsthand how ancient civilizations communicated and how writing has evolved through time.

The three spacious playgrounds covered in artificial turf are shaded and filled with age-appropriate outdoor activities and are safely tucked behind the school. All outdoor areas are securely fenced with access available only through the building. An in-ground pool is located on the campus and will provide swim lessons during the summer for children three years old through school age. A custom sport court and rock climbing wall are real showstoppers in the school age yard.

We educate and care for children from 6 weeks to 13 years old. Elementary schools for pick-up will be: Negley, Kyle, Fuentes, Buda, and Carpenter Hill.
